Andy’s Pregame Thoughts: Amy Schneider has had one of the most successful first three games, in terms of money won, in the history of the show. Winning Game #4 today will undoubtedly cement her Tournament of Champions chances.
On her Twitter account, Amy has very openly said that she is transgender. One thing that I can say right now is that there are people throughout the United States and Canada who are watching these episodes, and realizing that not only is there someone who is like them on their televisions, but also that it is a positive representation of a successful trans person. And maybe, for some of those viewers, it might hopefully let them see that there could be a positive outcome for them. If Amy keeps winning, this effect will hopefully snowball.
Sadly, there is also going to be a concerted effort by people on social media every step of the way who will attempt to dehumanize Amy. Unfortunately, the side effect of Jeopardy! appealing to a wide range of people is that the show also appeals to a range of people who are afraid of anybody who is not like them. It is certainly my hope that some of these people, who might otherwise hate or fear out of ignorance, might have their opinions changed about trans people because of this positive representation.
PSA: The best way to keep COVID-19 at bay (and keep Jeopardy! producing new episodes) is for everybody to get their vaccinations as soon as they are able to, including any boosters as recommended. When wearing a mask, please ensure that your mask covers both your nose and your mouth.

More information about Final Jeopardy: (The following write-up is original content and is copyright 2021 The Jeopardy! Fan. It may not be copied without linked attribution back to this page.)
The two major party candidates in the 1920 U.S. Presidential election were Republican Warren G. Harding, who came to prominence as the editor of The Marion Star prior to his political career, and James M. Cox, who came to prominence as the editor of the Dayton Daily News. Cox’s name lives on as the name behind Cox Enterprises, probably best known to viewers in many parts of the country as a provider of telecommunications services, through its subsidiary Cox Communications. Harding won the election in a landslide, taking over 60% of the nationwide popular vote and carrying 37 states.
